Back to simplicity for Off-White

Abloh's Fall Winter 2020 collection is less street than ever
Reading time 1 minutes

Virgil Abloh will have grown tired of streetwear. For the Autumn-Winter 2020 collection he dedicates himself to the wardrobe of a more adult man, enriched with baseball caps and sneakers but without screamed details, with the exception of the monochromatic red, yellow and optical white sunglasses. He dedicates himself to formal double-breasted outings, oversized jacket and wide trousers, to be worn without a shirt and resumes the cut-outs in the shape of a gruyere already included in the women's collection also for knitwear and coats. A little 90's fever with leather trench coats and peacoats, square toe ankle boots and small rectangular satchels, reminiscent of dad's purses. There is also space for knitwear with maxi logo ponchos, long patchwork cardigans with Andean motifs and a new print depicting bottles of Champagne, lemons, aubergines appearing on pleated trousers, jackets and blouses. A Mediterranean touch that also adorns the edge of a shirt with fire red fringed sleeves, combined with trousers with a front pleat and a small punching at the ankle, which creates a delicate pleated effect. The sneakers, a great fetish of the typical Off-White look, are all race-like trainers, very dry in shape and essentially in two colors: black and mud. At the end of the show, the models appeared in an interior setting, a tableau vivant with large chandeliers, silk curtains and cubes-pedestal. And finally a tip tap dancer (will he have danced with derbies customized for the occasion?) Concluded the initial choreography by meeting an excited Virgil. Off-White looks beyond the sports world and is about to become an increasingly complete maison.
